He then started training in boxing and had some ammatuer boxing bouts, before transitioning to kickboxing, K1 and then finding the worlds most effective striking art: Muay Thai. Training predominantly under Laos Toohey one of the greats from the golden era, and also 2x world champion from Thailand: Nueng Sityodtong. Competing as an amatuer and then turning pro, he mixed it up at a top level fighting some of Australia's best fighters, 2 now world champions, and won multiple title belts, his only losses being contending other titles. 

Kael then decided to transition into the world of grappling. He trained in wrestling for 18 months under arguably the best wrestler in Australia, Russian native Talgat.

MUAY THAI KICKBOXING

Muay Thai, “The Art of Eight Limbs”, is considered to be the most effective and devastating striking arts in the world.

Utilizing kicks and punches, knees and elbows, Muay Thai uses ring proven combat techniques to give you a hard core fitness workout like nothing else. It not only improves your balance, flexibility, speed and power, but is an amazing cardio workout and fat blaster.

Learn to kick and punch like a fighter with all classes taken by those who have actually been there and done it in the ring and cage. Kael has had 20 professional kickboxing, K1 and Muay Thai fights with only 3 losses. Making him one of the only coaches in all of Gippsland with actual fighting experience. Not to mention he's jumped in the cage for 7 pro MMA matches. 

Classes are accessible to all fitness levels and experience. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a complete beginner wanting to just get a sweat up and have a new hobby, or a professional fighter wanting to train to fight, we scale the class to the level you’re at and help you achieve your goals.

 

Brazilian jiu-jitsu

This Brazilian grappling art initially gained fame by being the first martial art to dominate in the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) and remains one of the most effective forms of self-defence and an essential part of MMA.

The goal of BJJ is to teach students how to overcome strength and size with the correct application of timing, leverage and technique to force an opponent into submission. Utilizing joint locks, chokes, takedowns, holds and pins, BJJ provides a variety of skills for self defence or MMA. It is also the most effective system of self defence for females especially considering it specializes on the ground which is where they’re likely to be end up against an aggressor.

Kael is a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (there are no black belts yet in Gippsland) under the number 1 competition team in the country; The Australian Elite Team. He is the only Jiu Jitsu coach in Gippsland who has also had professional fights in kickboxing, K1 and Muay Thai. He is also the only Jiu Jitsu coach who has had professional MMA / cage fight experience having had 7 MMA fights. Placing him in a unique position to not only teach the sport of Jiu Jitsu, but how it applies verse someone trying to strike you for self defence or for those with MMA aspirations. As Jiu Jitsu for fighting is completely different to sport Jiu Jitsu. Kael teaches a very self defence / fight oriented style of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Takedown, pass, submit. 

 

Kids AND TEENS Classes

We pride ourselves on our inclusive and supportive environment, where kids and teens of all backgrounds come to develop confidence, discipline, self-esteem and a sense of control. Martial arts is not just about getting fit or losing weight, it is about empowering young people by channeling their fears, frustrations, anxieties and worries into a structured and controlled self-defense environment and instilling them with the discipline needed to succeed later in life. By gradually improving their tolerance and ability to be comfortable while in uncomfortable situations, we help to build children into resilient adults who will later become the leaders of tomorrow.
We strive to make our classes fun for our students so that they WANT to come as much as their parents want them to. All the while, most importantly giving them the skills and abilities that may one day save their life of that of a loved one if they are bullied or attacked.
We try to cover topics each week to help to direct our students to make the right choices in their lives, everything from anti bullying strategies, nutrition, healthy eating, stranger danger, internet dangers and other important topics we would all want our children to be educated in.

Children's Muay Thai Kickboxing

Muay Thai originates from Thailand and is an integral part of Thai culture. Much like AFL is in Australia. Muay Thai is known as the ‘art of eight limbs’ as it’s known for its devastating kicks, punches, knees and elbows. Muay Thai is widely considered the most effective striking martial art in the world, as it’s the striking martial art of choice for most professional MMA fighters.

Our classes are very child friendly, where we scale the techniques and moves back to allow your child to learn the art of Muay Thai is a safe environment minimising the risk of injury by taking out the head contact / hard sparring. Our classes are very non-threatening, and your child will be made to feel safe and secure in a nurturing environment while having fun, at the same time as building up important life skills.

Our kids Muay Thai classes begin with a variation of warm ups that are aimed to improve the student’s body movement and coordination. We then move onto hitting and holding Thai pads and practicing skills such as elbows, knees, punching and kicking. These are put together with pad drills and lead to light touch sparring when students are skilled and confident enough. Along with partnering up to practise learning how to defend against various attacks and strikes. These techniques are designed at improving balance, flexibility, speed and power. We also incorporate Thai clinching (manipulating an opponent’s body), partner drills, and self-defence skills. We end the class with a fun martial arts-based game.

CHILDREN'S Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:

The Brazilian grappling art initially gained fame by being the first martial art to dominate in the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) and remains the most effective forms of self-defence. The goal of BJJ is to teach students how to overcome strength and size with the correct application of timing, leverage and technique to force an opponent into submission. Utilizing joint locks, chokes, takedowns, holds and pins, BJJ is the most effective one on one fighting system on the planet.

Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are fun and engaging. The teaching and content will vary depending on the age and skill set of the students. We start our classes with a warm up, starting slowly, this section builds with intensity to get them ready for the content of the class. Typical warm up activities include running, rolls, hip escapes and movement drills. We will then move onto learning new drills where a specific technique is introduced and explained, often in the form of a game where the students won’t even realise they’re practising Jiu Jitsu moves. Students will then pair up and attempt to complete this technique with their training partners. Students are reminded to look after the safety of their training partners as well as themselves. Each lesson will end with a fun game that promotes an aspect required for BJJ.

All of our classes are based around the safety and security of your children. Martial arts does not have to be dangerous, under the right instructor students can flourish and learn amazing abilities which they will carry with them throughout their lives.
